Pico Iyer

When speaking of an inner stillness, it may seem hard to imagine how we might get through a busy airport in that state, or manage any stressful situation. Yet if we understand the laws of energy, we will see that when we add our intense energy to an already intense situation, we are actually feeding the intensity. Just as when we get into an argument with someone, the back and forth feeds the original spark and makes it worse. So when we remain in a stillness, we observe the energies of other things, rather than feed those energies. Said another way, why would we want to feed the things that make us stressed out?

John: So, in the meditation dream, I find myself holding off from responding to an issue in which there is an invoking of an outer response. In other words, it’s an outer trying to get my attention. And so I’m holding off responding to it. And I hold out because I know, deep inside, that the response cannot be an in-sync reply. In other words, you can’t respond to the outer, reflections cannot meet reflections. 

So I hold back and do not reciprocate, outwardly, because there’s something inside of me, and

I consider it like the soul, or something, which is refusing to move and wants to just stay still. It won’t buy into this outer that is trying to grab my attention. So I find myself surrendered to the inner stillness. In other words, I just can’t bite; that motion just doesn’t grab me. 

And so what does that mean? Does it mean that the outer vibrations are somehow or another absorbed by the stillness, or into the heart, or somehow? And that my mind, that normally buys into the outer reflections, just cannot do it? In other words, there’s something that has gotten more meaningful in terms of staying still with a more all-consuming heartfulness. 

So that causes me to wonder: what is this stillness? And I come to ponder it as relating to a plane of the soul, which is where surrender and non-being come together, and where everything is absorbed. The outer is absorbed by this encompassing heart, or something. In other words, the reflections aren’t separate; the reflections can all be taken within. And so, in other words, there’s always going to be reflections, but the reflections you don’t take them with you in bizarreness, the reflections stay as manifestation, still in terms of the degree to which something has to act out vibrationally with images. 

And you’re always noting the degree of true stillness by looking at the greater teacher of the outer, that is manifestation, but you don’t try to change the outer in order to get to the inner. Such a mindset, in which the outer vibratoriness and corresponding images are something that you can bring with you into the plane of the soul. It just isn’t so; because they are reflections they veil the heart from the inner.

So what happened is, in my meditation dream, I was able to not reciprocally react, because I was on the plane of the universal soul where stillness is natural. Now, the alternative to that, of course, is an outer reflective in which the senses portray the reflective physical and the result, then, of something like that is kind of an ego orientation floundering as manifestation. In other words, playing out the vibrations in the images – because vibrations and images are correlated. Or, to put it another way, manifestation exists as an outer reflection in which vibrations correspond to created images. 

And so this has caused me to notice a psychic illusion. To visualize within an outer future unfoldment involves the taking of a vibratory energetic from the stillness into physical manifestation, and doing it, this time, in which you stop time, as if irrelevant. In other words, manifestation is a conditional reflection involving time and vibration, which densed down becomes physical space. 

So psychic inflections are a deviation in one of two ways in terms of the stillness. They are a deviation in that you can have a psychic quality in which you transcend time, so that you can come to see things backwards and forwards and up and about. That’s a psychic trait. 

Or you can take and you could still be buying into time, but you can get rid of vibrations, in which case, if you can get rid of the vibrations that then manifest into something physical, because they constellate as something dense in the outer, if you get rid of the vibrations that have their way of having to live something through in a reflective denseness, then you can do things like transport or move objects. In other words, you can transcend space. So, psychic abilities have to do with playing on the edges of time and space that are important as foundational points to a vibrational imaged manifestation.

qLz00_If we truly understood, and embraced, the cycles and purposes of life, the world wouldn’t look the way it does. Because we make the physical life the be-all, end-all of our existence, we strip our life of its real purpose in the universal unfolding. This makes us susceptible to the pain of gain and loss, in comparison to one another, which ultimately can bring out the worst of our nature. When we accept that we are here for a reason, we will use our time and energy very differently.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the meditation dream, I’m observing the landscape. The landscape is such that it affects how life unfolds. In other words, in this landscape you have two things, you have things either expanding or you have contracting. And if it’s contracting, it means it the conditions are getting direr and direr as the tearing down and blowing up continues to predominate.

In other words, it’s like a type of fire that’s sweeping the land, and you’re left to a rear-guard kind of coping. But, things are dire because you’re not gaining any headway you’re only having, in the expanding aspect of things, you’re only having reprieves that open things up. But, in the overall, things are still breaking down.

And so this is what I keep seeing, as far as the eye can see, indicating that my world is steadily shrinking, and that means my outer world. And that just also happens to be the prevailing reality; in other words, things are getting harder and harder in the outer. However, in spite of such appearances, my attention is such that I am straining to isolate instances where there’s relief from the breakdown, where there actually is a counterbalancing, or something.

The fact that there is this sort of thing gives me hope. As a realist, the outer is losing ground to the steady breakdown fire that can’t be put out. But then there’s this, almost unbeknownst, that that breakdown fire is seeming to emerge on kind of its own track. And what is interesting is that in the dream, I’m calm about what is unfolding, because there is this other, that’s expanding, it means that I can be calm and let go. If I didn’t have any choices, or alternatives, I suppose it would be kind of depressing.

It’s as if facts are facts, or, it is what it is, kind of thing. And yet I can be okay with that, I’m able to be surrendered to the inevitable because, for me, there’s a bit of an alternative. I mean, there is the expansive aspect that is like a hope, and has its healing effect in terms of my perceptions, in terms of my way of handling what is unfolding in manifestation, in general.

Consequently, I’m able to be in the midst of the steady, contractive destruction and not be in despair. That’s the meditation dream.

So, what is going on is, I am able to discern that which is real, on an inner level, from that which is falling apart in the collective consciousness of an outer. I am okay in the midst of this. It does not do me any good to dwell upon the uneven unfolding unpleasantries that are like a fire burning out of control, destroying the overall outer habitat.

I’m able to accept this as an outer reality, because there’s inside of me something else, that kind of counterbalances it, at least it does so for me, because there is the expansionary perception that redeems me from within. My contribution is to communicate that way of life as being what things are really all about.

Or, to say it slightly different, to communicate what life is really about, by directing conscious attention to the interaction, it is able to open up for me more and more, or it has opened up for me more and more, and the degree I’m able to communicate the stillness of that opening up, the more my heart is able to hold, within itself, all of manifestation cradled therein.

I’m able to perceive the distinction between hope, which is expansive, and despair, which is contractive, as being like qualities of accommodation. So, am I able to host everything in manifestation? Or, are the guests in charge of the ship of manifestation? If I am the host, I’m able to put everything into my heart and draw projections into a stillness. If my reality is to the projections, the guests are in charge, and the breakdown of despair predominates as the outer projections control.

Access within is a communication that breaks through the veils of despair. The collective patterns and habituation cannot stand in this light. The need is met when, from within, the all-pervading heart presides over it all. What I’m talking about is a forgiveness that absorbs vibrations by taking such deviations into the heart to be redeemed redemptively. When this happens, the predominating veils naturally lift, our beingness is able to be the universal heart.

Everything functions that way, as the universal heart, so to speak, or the all-encompassing oneness of one heart. And, when that is like that, joy is in this one beingness heart and everything is whole and at home.

Such a joyous effect seems to rise up from this all-pervading stillness, where prior vibrations had existed, that despairingly distinguish and separate. Such vibrations, that despairingly distinguish and separate, have been absorbed into the stillness. And, oddly enough, rising up from that almost like – poof! – just like a flash, is kind of excitement and a joyousness.

To be able to timely let go into an all-pervasive heart, which takes in vibrations as food, changes the atmosphere automatically. There is nothing to do; doing ideas of this or that is a mind still in the veils of outer projection.

Reported answers are the problem. Or, as Einstein said, you cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it. When all vibratory states are stilled, the heart is able to take everything into an atmosphere, and the station of love, joy, peace and happiness exude as a wholeness of soul.

The atmosphere is that of rejoicing. And, in a stillness, this is all that remains. And, of course, that’s like describing the angelic state, too. That’s an aspect of the angelic state inside myself. It’s said that the angels can only sing the praises and glory of God, so this is like catching up with the angelic side – inside of oneself. In other words, they don’t have freedom of choice; they just serve and praise.

So, this is interesting. This is bringing that aspect in, in another way of looking at it, in terms of how it is part of the whole, instead of something that is skewed a bit, as a consequence of overindulgence in terms of projective outer.

2261751Energy and matter are the two fundamental states in the universe. And each one is seeking to be the other: energy wants to become matter, and matter wants to return to energy. Is it any different for the human, who always seeks a higher connection, back into the energetic realms of its arising? And this is what our spiritual and religious paths point us to, these connections and interactions between matter and energy, but raised to a level of consciousness – which changes everything.

John: And that’s what my dream was like, too.

In my meditation dream, I was looking at something in life, in the outer, as a light that kind of opened up in the outer, and that I was letting go of that light that opened up in the outer. And what I was doing was I was actually, in the dream, catching up with matter, a type of matter, that was on the inner.

Now this is complete bewilderment. What was going on was the breath was being flipped. The breath was being flipped – and it didn’t matter if the breath was flipped. It really didn’t matter, although at the time, it was a sensation of complete bewilderment because I’m inclined to sense something more in light on the in-breath. And then to get the sense that there is an out-breath coming through, and yes, maybe that’s kind of so because it’s with the out-breath that you come down into things, and the thought-upon-thought is that’s a type of matter, and that was something I was trying to settle for. And I went around and around inside.

I was looking at it almost in the opposite regard way, but I was still looking at it with respect to the breath and I realized, not right away, instead I was still trying to make it make sense because I was using flip sides of the breath. I was attempting to make it make sense, and so in the meditation dream I wasn’t able to wake up with the meditation dream, and so I couldn’t come out of it because there was no resolution in that regard.

And so then I kind of went into a sleep. In other words the meditation dream was there inside, I dreamt movement around that, trying to find something, trying to make it make sense, and in trying to make it make sense I was trying to find the lightness, or why the out-breath somehow or another, as an aspect of matter, because that’s how I was looking at it, it was like the light was being given up, and that I was in a presence of light. The light was being given up, and I was trying to deal with matter. And I guess it was the flip side because I’m used to thinking that matter is the problem, and that I’m trying to deal with something more in the light.

So it was like the opposite side of the breath, flipping the breath around, just like when one does the dhikr. The Naqshbandis do it in which you release, vibrationally, in the in-breath, and the Chistis do it in the out-breath. And it was like I was getting a sensation of a visualization in the opposite way, and, in trying to view this as something that was significant and important, but it wasn’t. It wasn’t, it was just more of the same of how an illusion is perpetuated with the in-breath and the out-breath, and that this takes you outside of the stillness. But I never got it in that. In that I was in a state of bewilderment because I was still trying to make it make sense by futtering with the breath. And I got it in the dream.
